This Is The Way That You Are

 The Way That You Are
The Classic Crime

He gets his information from overhearing conversations.
He doesn't ask questions, doesn't learn many lessons.
And he keeps his mouth shut,
until it boils over, and he blows up
And then he can't form his words right,
they don't fit together so tight

And I hope to God that he will find his name
and not listen to his "so-called" friends when they so boldly say:

This is the way, that you are
Don't let them say
This is the way, that you are


She doesn't have much to say about yesterday
or what happened to her, when she was eight
So she drinks a lot, and it her makes feel okay
For the moment, but it's gone when she awakes.

And I hope you know that somewhere out there loves you
So don't give yourself away,
and don't listen to them when they say:

This is the way, that you are
Don't let them say
This is the way, that you are
No!

This is the way, that you are.
Don't let them say
This is the way, that you are.
Don't let them say
This is the way,
This is the way,
This is the way that you are.
Don't let them say,
This is the way,
This is the way that you are.

  1. I wish I could someday write something that I felt was this inspiring to others. The Classic Crime is my life. <3

  3. I don't think anything happened to them, really. They're not with Tooth and Nail anymore but they're going to release a new record in early 2012 with another record label, I thought.

    And I am excited~ I love them a lot. :3

  4. Yeah, one of my favorite bands that I JUST discovered - Jonezetta - disappeared the same way. And since 2009, they've never said or done ANYTHING. I miss them a lot.

  5. LIKE CAPITAL LIGHTS. *cry*

    I hope TCC doesn't just disappear. If they do, I will probably die.
